Move forward with concrete steps for automotive and industrial equipment, we seek to further expand our business and sustainable growth.

Akira Takata President and CEO

Since our founding in 1990 as Japan’s first fabless maker specializing in system LSIs, MegaChips Corporation has focused its resources on research and development to hone its unique technology and placed emphasis on building a comprehensive system that plans, develops and provides system LSIs for customers. Always motivated by our desire to contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of our customers, we have combined our knowledge of applications and systems with our expertise in LSIs, thereby designing and generating outstanding system LSIs that meet the needs of customers and the times. Serving as a development partner for customers and supporting them as they overcome their problems or differentiate their products has been a great source of our growth.


With the rapid advance of innovation in information technology, the industry is increasingly changing, and so is the requirements of the semiconductor products that are key devices around us. Considering this circumstance as an opportunity for our further growth, we aim at becoming a bigger player in the world by pursuing expansion on two fronts: the stable business foundation for leading customers, and the new business with a competitive edge in emerging fields.


Concretely, we will devote ourselves to the “automotive” and “industrial equipment” fields. In the former, the high-speed communication technology will play an important role to meet the needs for autonomous driving and safety-driving support systems. In the latter, the demand for factory automation systems and robotics that comprehensively link and control various kinds of information including operation processes, quality, progress, and therefore heighten productivity, is growing. We will further develop our business by making the best use of our core expertise, know-how and unique high-speed communication intellectual property (design assets). We will also accelerate global expansion of both MEMS timing device and Smart Connectivity.



By aggressively bringing new products in the fields of automotive/industrial equipment and communication infrastructure, and focus on the development of MEMS timing device and Smart Connectivity, we aim to expand our businesses, and achieve sustainable growth.
